Botanic Road Trippin'

 On January 2, my sweetest B. surprised me with a road trip to the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden, full of California native plants. On the way, we passed the sign above.
 Not much in bloom this time of year, but there are many cool trees there. This is a mesquite tree

 View of Mt. Baldy.

 Ghostly tree (almost white)--I don't know what it is.
 Boojum! This was about 60 feet tall.
A fun day was had by all...we had the place to ourselves, too, which was extra nice.

Is there anything better than a surprise? Good old B and his sweetness.

It looks like a gorgeous area. Did you see any interesting wildlife or are there no critters?
